I have found Glaxal Base has worked wonders on my fair babies with sensitive skin! We use it as a base in pharmacy for rx creams and I am quite certain that it contains no alcohol because it might alter the effectivness of some medicatins. A drop of lavender oil for a holistic store might give enough sent without harming for relaxation! It has worked for me :)

I use Johnson's and have never had a problem.  I had never heard not to use it before.

I am fond of aveeno and burts bees... but i have one question... is your babies skin dry? If not i would use nothing at all unless you put a bit of baby oil in him/her after a bath. It is best if babies natural oils are allowed to moisturise skin at this age unless the are dry. Definitly look for something with the least amount of chemicals and fragrances possible. (If you cannot pronounce it it probably ought not be on your baby)

There is a lotion you can use. My friend's daughter has excema and I will get you that information ASAP and I know it is a prescription so I will get the name of it... IT seems to work really well.

mineral oil is the base for many lotions, but you can get it plain. i love it 'cuz it's not irritating, it doesn't smell like anything and, best of all, it's cheap! it's a little greasy, but if you put it on right after a bath (before towel drying, or instead of towel drying) it goes on easily. i like aquaphor too, but i think it's pricey and it's just petroleum jelly based. why not just use vaseline?

My doctor recommended Eucerin or Cetaphil. He also recommended Dove or Caress bath soap and Dreft for laundry. These items have less detergent than other brands which can irritate sensitive skin.

You should try Eminence ORganics Skincare Linden Calendula Treatment cream, it's entirely organic & made with all natural products and no chemicals.  Linden Calendula is a type of flower that helps treat excema and it works great for diaper rash.  I use this cream for my baby's face daily.

Any lotion with alcohol is a no no because it does dry the skin.  Try Aquaphilic in the tube or plastic jar.  Some pharmacies have it behind there counter.  I have always sworn by it and my grand daughter was born 2/21 and the drs said the same thing "no lotions with alcohol" and they supplied us with the Aquaphilic - wonderful stuff.  You can even use it on yourself or others.  Its not greasy and doesn't rub off and it penetrates rather quickly.  Try not to bathe your baby more than every 3 days.  You can always wipe babies skin with a warm soft cloth especially their scalp and face.  As for their bottoms if they get really messy from a bm diaper or you feel their bottoms need more from all the diapers before the 3rd day - then just put the bottom in some warm water and wipe with the bath ingredient you use for babies bath.

I use aveeno on my little one because we both have sensitive skin. Also on detergent I use Armour Hammer Sensitive...But Ive recently heard of that Aquaphor and thought about giving that a try as well

CALIFORNIA BABY ALL THE WAY!!!  Check out their bubble bath too....it comes with a bubble wand that is a wonderful way to make bathtime a fun and bonding experience.  The diaper rash cream works WONDERS!

My hubby works for a company called medline and they have recently put one of their lotions on the market.  It is called skin repair cream and can only be bought at cvs.  This is the most fabulous stuff.  My nephew is allergic to lotions and he can use this.  Hope you will try it i love it.  hope it will help.

My daughter has very sever eczema and we only use Eucerin. Eucerin is not water-based and definitely has no alcohol in it. It doesn't smell all sweet and baby-like, but unscented things are much better for your baby's skin. Try it! We love it.

My daughter has very sensitive skin. Her pediatrician recommended Cetaphil which is fragrance free and non-irritating. It works great on her!

Hia try aqueous cream( hope that is spelt tight!) it comes in a big tub and you can rub it on your baby or put it in their bath. The health visitor recommended it, doesn't contain alcohol and is dead cheap to buy around 99p. I still use iot on my 1 year old

Aquaphor and Eucerin original cream work really well. Also recommended by our Peditrician that the product should be applied within 3 minutes of getting out of bath/shower. Aveeno bath products and Aveeno oatmeal bath work really well also.

Trust me I would not listen to everything nurces say, I have to much and its like everything i thought i could do with my first child I couldnt until my second one came and i really found out by a lot of resources that you could do a lot of different things say you cant do. It is perfectly fine to use johnson and johnson baby lotion I have been using it on both my kids for a couple years now and there just fine. If you choose not to then I know baby magic lotion works and smells nice. And its cheap

Aquaphor or Baby Eucerin. My boys both have really dry skin and we use these lotions everyday and it helps. We don't use Johnson because of the perfume in it. Also for bath wash, my doctor recommended Burts Bee's baby wash, it's very gentle.

My pediatrician told us to use Aquaphore.  It really helped during the winter.  You could also try Aveeno.  It's not as thick as the Aquaphore.

Hi there,



I use the Johnson's range on my son. I was also given samples of their products when in hospital with my son.



I have just got off the ph from Johnson and Johnson, the lady I spoke with said that the "alcohol is not associated with the drink driving, the alcohol that they use is a drying agent.

I discovered a cream called Vancicream on the drugstore.com website. My son was getting bad dry skin and small mild patches of eczema. It's a miracle worker on his skin. It's cheap, free of a lot of ingredients and really works well. The big tub lasts for a long time.

I use Oilatum on my 2 mo. old. It's non-comedogenic and fragrance free. My baby has eczema on his face and scalp, and it's what the doctor has recommended to help keep it under control.

Aveeno is the best lotion for babies Its in the  baby section. Johnson also gave my kids rash you should change also her baby wash to baby Aveeno is the best investment you can make.

I use Shaklee's creamy baby oil, it doesn't have any alcohol, mineral oil, added colors or dyes. It's been specifically formulated for babies, nonirritating and dermatologist tested, I love it! it smells great, and I don't have to worry about anything unsafe being absorbed into my child's skin.

Olive Oil works GREAT!  Don't slather the baby like a little pig:)  Just a few tiny drops in your palm will moisturize the baby's entire body.  There is not a special kind, in the cooking isle at the grocery store...and of them will work.  I hope this helps:)
